Pie chart legend - show as a separate element

Path Finder

I have a simple pie chart. Whenever I move the mouse over , it shows count/percentage values.
How do I output them in a separate table, legend or label, so that they are visible on the panel ?

Splunk is 6.2, using simple XML. These options are added at the moment, how do I achieve the one above ?

<option name="charting.axisLabelsX.majorLabelStyle.overflowMode">ellipsisNone</option>
        <option name="charting.axisLabelsX.majorLabelStyle.rotation">0</option>
        <option name="charting.axisTitleX.visibility">visible</option>
        <option name="charting.axisTitleY.visibility">visible</option>
        <option name="charting.axisTitleY2.visibility">visible</option>
        <option name="charting.axisX.scale">linear</option>
        <option name="charting.axisY.scale">linear</option>
        <option name="charting.axisY2.enabled">false</option>
        <option name="charting.axisY2.scale">inherit</option>
        <option name="charting.chart">pie</option>
        <option name="charting.chart.bubbleMaximumSize">50</option>
        <option name="charting.chart.bubbleMinimumSize">10</option>
        <option name="charting.chart.bubbleSizeBy">area</option>
        <option name="charting.chart.nullValueMode">gaps</option>
        <option name="charting.chart.sliceCollapsingThreshold">0.01</option>
        <option name="charting.chart.stackMode">default</option>
        <option name="charting.chart.style">shiny</option>
        <option name="charting.drilldown">all</option>
        <option name="charting.layout.splitSeries">0</option>
        <option name="charting.legend">legend</option>
        <option name="charting.legend.labelStyle.overflowMode">ellipsisMiddle</option>
        <option name="charting.legend.placement">top</option>

The solution is to create a table under your chart with the same string search. This is an example with a tutorial search string

pie chart legend

<panel>
  <chart>
    <searchString>sourcetype=access_* status=200 action=purchase | top categoryId</searchString>
    <earliestTime>0</earliestTime>
    <latestTime/>
    <option name="charting.axisLabelsX.majorLabelStyle.overflowMode">ellipsisNone</option>
    <option name="charting.axisLabelsX.majorLabelStyle.rotation">0</option>
    <option name="charting.axisTitleX.visibility">visible</option>
    <option name="charting.axisTitleY.visibility">visible</option>
    <option name="charting.axisTitleY2.visibility">visible</option>
    <option name="charting.axisX.scale">linear</option>
    <option name="charting.axisY.scale">linear</option>
    <option name="charting.axisY2.enabled">false</option>
    <option name="charting.axisY2.scale">inherit</option>
    <option name="charting.chart">pie</option>
    <option name="charting.chart.nullValueMode">gaps</option>
    <option name="charting.chart.sliceCollapsingThreshold">0.01</option>
    <option name="charting.chart.stackMode">default</option>
    <option name="charting.chart.style">shiny</option>
    <option name="charting.drilldown">all</option>
    <option name="charting.layout.splitSeries">0</option>
    <option name="charting.legend.labelStyle.overflowMode">ellipsisMiddle</option>
    <option name="charting.legend.placement">right</option>
  </chart>
  <table>
    <searchString>sourcetype=access_* status=200 action=purchase | top categoryId</searchString>
  </table>
</panel>

Re: Pie chart legend - show as a separate element

I've been trying to do this myself.
Is there any way to do this so that the second instance of the query (or the table itself) uses the results already obtained by the first one? (As opposed to to running the query in full a second time).

In my instance, the original query can take up to 20 seconds to run (depending on time range selected).
I'd prefer not to double the run time of the panel simply to show the number of records (which have obviously been generated previously upon execution of the first instance of the query).
